It has happened! The dreams of the audience about fast and convenient app have come true! We remade the current version from the very beginning as it was though worthy but a little bit old-fashioned in it's design and technologies.
The app is the winner of Material Design Award Competition, took the 1st place in Runet Rating contest, сategory «Information and Communication» and 3d place in category «The app with best UX/UI».

Project goal

To make a modern and convenient app in order to increase the number of views from the mobile devices and as a result the company's income from the mobile advertisement.
We thought about data submission, simplified the navigation, added several features and packed everything in the understated design according to the latest fashion of Google guidelines.

Mobile app Channel One Russia, Android
TV guide
The TV guide is shown with the start of the app. It focuses on the current program – you can easily find it (the picture of this program is shown). The guide for 5 days is enough not to think about what to watch this week. You can make a reminder for the programs you like most of all (the phone will remind you 5, 15 or 30 minutes before).
TV projects
For your convenience the series of some popular TV shows are included in the special section. «Evening Urgant», «The voice», «KVN» and other popular TV shows are now available for watching and downloading at any time – you don`t need to be afraid to miss your favorite TV show!

Real fans can add the best TV projects to the favorites so they will be available in the side menu (you just need to tap once). It works really fast!
Channel One Russia issues the news every three hours. We created a special section with news for several days for those who don`t want to wait.

Each event presents its own release and has a text message if the speed of connection is low.
Saving of series
If you need you can save the video of the news (or any TV program) to your device to watch it later (even without internet connection).
The app answers all your questions and helps with every step: how to save the video, why does not it load and what should you do if something goes wrong. We have done everything for the app to be very easy and convenient to use.
Tablet on iOS and Android
We have created a special version for the tablets, as screen is never big enough for video!
Business services
A number of business features has been implemented. First of all it is a strong system of monitoring and statistics, then, a logical instrument of monetization – there is a video advertisement before the TV show with an opportunity to skip it after several seconds.
The project won the Google Material Design in the category "The best redesign of the app in Material Design». The organizer of the contest is Google Inc.
